I am glad to see the distinction established between Brazillian "paraiba" tourmaline and the "paraiba" TYPE tourmaline from Africa. We know there is a lot of contention in the trade regarding the descriptive use of "paraiba" and this serves to help put an end to it! Tom Goodwin, G.G. 12:41, 19 January 2007 (PST)
